Esquire has taken the time to fill us in on the best sammies in America. There are some great choices on here, including one from Portland, a couple up in Seattle and then taking the time to hit every geographic location and the sandwiches they made famous.
But then they sully their reputation by including the Mc “freakin” Rib. Seriously. They included a limited-offer sandwhich from McDonalds. And they want us to take their opinion how? Regardless, I’ll be trekking into downtown Stumptown to try Portland’s offering:
Pine State Biscuits, Portland, Oregon
A hangover cure found only at Portland?s Farmers Market (for now): fried chicken, bacon, cheddar, gravy, and an over-easy egg on a cream-top buttermilk biscuit still hot from the outdoor oven. (South Park Blocks, SW Harrison and Montgomery; Saturdays)
If I may make a suggestion for next year, it would be to head into downtown Boston, sometime at midday during the work week and head to Chacareros. It’s a Chilean sammy and perhaps the greatest concoction ever.
Does this wet your pallette?
“It begins with homemade bread, that we make fresh daily. The main ingredient is either tender grilled steak or chicken (or both). Then with your main ingredient, we add steamed green beans, which gives it that authentic Chilean touch, Muenster cheese and fresh tomatoes. After that, we add an avocado spread, salt, pepper & our secret hot recipe to complete the sandwich.”
Simple, delicious and unexpected. The green beans and avocado spread smack your taste buds into your stomach.
Anyone in Portland know sandwhich places or sandwiches worth trekking for?
